Windows 10

Microsoft’s latest Patch Tuesday Update(KB4515384) brought back the infamous Windows Search bug, and with it, came another nasty bug, which broke the Windows 10 Start Menu for many users.

After receiving reports across various platforms, Microsoft finally acknowledged those bugs saying that they are currently investigating the issue and will soon share more information. In a support document, Microsoft wrote:

Some users report issues related to the Start menu and Windows Desktop Search

Microsoft has received reports that some users are having issues related to the Start menu and Windows Desktop Search.
Affected platforms:
  • Client: Windows 10, version 1903
Next steps: We are presently investigating and will provide an update when more information is available.

That said, on the Windows Search bug, when it’s first reported, Microsoft said that users who disabled the web integration in Windows Desktop Search are going to get affected by the Search bug. Interestingly enough, that issue has been fixed in the latest Patch Tuesday update, which was rolled out a day before yesterday.

Microsoft is expected to give us a brief idea about what might have caused the bugs along with the date of availability of the fix.
